East Asia in Photos and Videos

Hello! My name is Tom and for the past few years I have been travelling around the world to capture fascinating places in beautiful light. My images have been licensed by clients all over the world and my prints decorate walls in many homes and offices. After all these years arriving in a new country or a city for the first time still excites me. One of my favourite regions in the world is East Asia, where I have always felt great. As I also enjoy designing and developing websites, I created this site to present my favourite East Asian destinations in photos and short videos.
